Hands-On Astronomy with Cedars Montessori Elementary

Modeling precession of Earth's axis

It was a completely clear night last night for the second Cedars Montessori Elementary astronomy class. We go to know our telescopes and then viewed Jupiter, the crescent Moon, Venus and the Orion nebula.  We heard a Navajo star lore story about how the stars and constellations came to be. We finished the night off with learning how to use a star chart to find then spring constellations.  It was a great night and when it was time to end, it was hard to stop stargazing and leave!
